THE NEW NORMAL ?
“Rain streaming down windows on this soggy winter day. It strikes me, suddenly, as I think about what the weather’s been like during a year that is shaping up to be the hottest in recorded history: Forget that talk about “the new normal”. We are at the end of normal. Our warmer skies here in the East hold more moisture. All our weather systems are becoming unpredictable.
But not to sound depressed: I’m grateful to have a beautiful place to stay dry–and to be able to make the choice to go out and get soaked. A large part of our adaptation to the climate change we are in will be psychological: how do we keep our spirits buoyed? For me, the answer lies somewhere in finding beauty all around me, honoring it, and using it as the fuel that keeps me fighting to solve this problem.”
